Outriders - Status Resistance and Resistance Piercing

This is a guide to Status Resistance and Resistance Piercing in the game Outriders. To learn more about how Status Resistance affects your strategy and how to utilize Resistance Piercing, read on.

What is Status Resistance?

Status Resistance Info

Status Resistance
Status Resistance or Effect Resistance is the ability of an enemy to enter a state that grants them resistance and be immunity against status effects granted by Skills and Mods.

Most Elites and Bosses will have the Status Resistance symbol attached to their health bar.

Status Resistance Cause

Effect Resisted
When the Status Resistance icon turns blue, Effect Resistance is activated. This happens when you spam an enemy with several crowd-control effects or interrupts within a short period of time.

This resistance is accompanied by a cooldown timer. When the radial timer winds down to zero, the enemy will be susceptible to crowd control and interrupts again.

What is Resistance Piercing?

Resistance Piercing Info

Resistance Pierce
Resistance Piercing is the percentage of enemy Effect Resistance that is ignored when dealing ability damage. This means that even though Effect Resistance is activated, you can still deal significant amounts of damage with your Resistance Pierce.

Modifying Resistance Piercing

There are specific Mods that grant bonuses to enhance your Resistance Piercing. Modifying your Resistance Piercing can turn the tide especially when faced with multiple Elites.
